on december 18, 2008 with outgoing president george w. bush. listen to what he said, also his body language. [video clip] >> you said, i am optimistic that we can change the tone in washington. >> that was a hopeful person saying that. >> are you less hopeful? >> we work together, there were some bipartisan accomplishments but the rhetoric got very tough. some people here in this town use the politics of personal destruction to advance their agenda. i do not want to sound self- serving, but i have not. i do not think a president should. i was hoping for better tone, and it did not happen. host: as you reflect on george w. bush at the end of his two terms. guest: president obama has said things better very similar. it is not just about washington. washington is a reflection of a broader culture. we live in a polarized culture. we live in a culture that celebrates -- notoriety is the quickest ticket to 15 minutes in the 24 hour news cycle. the other enormous difference that contributes to this -- i do not know how you reverse it. 50 years ago, you had two political parties that were both appe
are skipping town. neither president george w. bush nor his father, recently hospit hospit hospitalized with health problems, plan to attend. >> for more, let's bring in david gregory. tomorrow, the president will deliver his inaugural address. the first time around we typically hear optimistic, loft lofty, ideal speeches. what do you expect him to say tomorrow? >> i think he wants to talk about restoration of the american economy. i think about the first inaugural address and how crisis laden the times were because of the crisis that was defining his initial work in his first term. it came to dominate his first term. now, i think he will talk about restoration, sunnier days ahead and how the united states reaches those goals. he does that against the back drop of such a divided washington. a lot of republicans are not in town or attending, because they don't want to show bad form by challenging him in any way during his inauguration. nev nevertheless, whether it is guns or debts, he faces that. >> given the reality of the past four years, would you expect a different barack obama going
to be part of the solution and work with congress to try to get things done. we watched george w. bush do it when he did it in a controversial election, first term and second term. first term he reached across the aisle and got tax cuts for everyone even though the united states senate switched majority control from republicans to democrats in may of his first year in office. then he worked across the aisle to get education reform done. it can happen, but it takes a president who is willing to be presidential and really lead rather than just demand. >> eric: do you think he can take a page from george w. bush. what did you advise the president at that time and what lessons from that experience that president obama can take as he enters into his second term? >> president bush had the advantage of being a governor where he had to work with other people on the other side of the aisle. he did that successfully in texas. when he got to washington, d.c. he was committed to govern the country, not just the one that demanded change. he wanted to work with the democrats and republicans to bring ch

[crowd chanting "obama"] >> thank you. thank you. my fellow citizens, i stand here today humbled by the task before us, grateful for the trust you have bestowed, mindful of the sacrifices borne by our ancestors. i thank president bush for his service to our nation, as well as the generosity and cooperation he has shown throughout this transition. 44 americans have now taken the presidential oath. the words have been spoken during rising tides of prosperity and the still waters of peace. yet, every so often, the oath is taken amidst gathering clouds and raging storms. at these moments, america has carried on not simply because of the skill or vision of those in high office, but because we the people have remained faithful to the ideals of our forbearers, and true to our founding documents. so it has been, so it must be with this generati

that will make it easier. that would be very helpful. i worked with president george w. bush on a comprehensive bill. i stated publicly at the time that is a democrat -- that this strongly are really agrees with a republican president. why not do it this year? i get the impression talking to a number of republicans and democrats that everybody feels we have to do something. you have to face reality of 12 million undocumented people. you have the reality of children who know no life except here. if we say you have to leave the country tomorrow. a whole lot of our businesses will shut down. a lot of things would grind to a halt. worse than that, a lot of families would be destroyed. my grandparents immigrated to vermont from italy. my great grandparents emigrated from ireland. towife's parents immigrated vermont from canada. under the rules of wonder if any of them -- i wonder if any of them would have stayed. they forget that they are probably one or three generations but someone coming from this country. i think we should have the dream act. senator durban has been a wonderful champion of that.
with the outcome. democrats complain that obama caved. because the president's plan allows george w. bush's tax cuts to become permanent. for those making less than $400,000 a year. these democrat critics fear that obama's second term instead of being quote, unquote bold will be quote, unquote cautious as his first term. and on the right, republicans moan and grown and say that -- groan and say that obama is demeaning in the way he deals with house speaker john boehner. hold on, says columnist rockman. we expect too much of obama he says because in the united states, we subscribe to the quote, unquote myth of the imperial presidency. other transformational democratic presidents such as fdr and lbj, rockman says, have substantial democratic majorities in both the senate and in the house to enact their landmark legislation. obama in contrast has had to work with a narrow democratic majority in the senate and with an opposition party, the republicans in control of the house for the two years since january 2011. well, what about ronald reagan? president of the united states two successful four-year
assistant to president george w. bush with us. conservative columnist and culture among our guests tonight. we begin with the very latest on the american killed in the hostage situation in algeria. fox disaster security correspondent jeff griffin with our report. >> in exchange for two american hostages, the kidnappers want to convicted terrorists released from u.s. prison. incarcerated for life for his role in the 1993 world trade center bombing and a pakistan in are a scientist who shot to american soldiers in afghanistan . the state department immediately ruled that out. >> the united states does not negotiate with terrorists. >> the state department, pentagon, and white house all were quick to call this attack terrorism. >> let's not forget, this is an act of terror. the perpetrators are the terrorists. >> terrorists should be on notice. there will find no sanctuary, no refuge, not in algeria, north africa, not anywhere. >> the u.s. military sent a c130 and a transport plane to evacuate the wounded, but the algerians are still rejecting any foreign counter-terrorism help at the bp comp
the spirit. also know, i worked for george w. bush in the white house. 294 executive orderers. executive orderers are something that happens often in the white house. when you're in the other party and in the minority, you don't like it, but nothing unconstitutional about it. >> i'm glad you said that because -- i'm glad you said that most people would say it is just second term confidence. he won, so he is being confident. >> we have heard this kind of junk before, attempt to recast the american revolution, somehow conservatives are true patriot, the president's a de facto king george iii. it is ridiculous. republicans were in office, they stretched executive power. when democrats are in office they do t this is something that president reagan and bush had the in the neighborhood of 300 executive orderers and people weren't talking about tyranny then that kind of language from rand paul isn't helpful. of all days this is a day we should remember we are all americans first u >> republicans are quite creative we go from casting president obama as george iii to a kenyan who wasn't even bor
was george w. bush's vice president, dick cheney. >> okay. we're going to go right now to the swearing-in of vice president joe biden. we saw a little cut-in there briefly as we were waiting for them to get set and get ready. i know he'll be doing this at the naval observatory. special re . p >>> on this sunday, the or20th january, we are about to watch history. good morning to you from the fox news world headquarters in new york, i'm bill hemmer. in a matter of moments, the vice president joe biden takes the oath of office, beginning his second term. it won't last long. at the naval observe taker in washington, dc, supreme court justice sonia sotomayer will preside over the swearing in. you see about 100 guests in attendance, including mr. biden's family, who will stand behind him. and the bible he uses is significant. our fox news senior white house affairs correspondent is on the grounds there. wendell, good morning to you, as we get ready for this swearing in. >> reporter: the bible has been in the biden family since the late 1800s. justice sotomayer, the first hispanic to serve on
is 2005, the george w. bush second inauguration, $45 million was raised for his committee. security costs there were comparable. there rose fivefold after 9/11. by 2005 they were in the $100 million range. this inauguration, despite hardships, the numbers are staying fairly concept -- fairly constant. host: our first president was sworn in on april 30 in new york city. it has moved back and forth from the east front to other locations on capitol hill. from harry truman through jimmy carter, it was always on the east front of the capital. moved by the congressional committee to the west front in 1985, which is where it remains today. kansas, independent line, good morning. caller: i think it is amazing that we all want to complain about every penny that is spent in washington, d.c., because of the inauguration. this is something special that happens every four years. surely, surely, people, you can understand. if you have a wedding, you do not spend that every year. you wait and you spend a fortune. the inauguration is very special to people, we should sit back and relax. it is a big event
is that speaking of bush, george w. bush and george h.w. bush, father and son, neither will be here. george 41, the older, was in the hospital. he was just released. the younger said that he is not coming because he wants to be with his father. we know, covering george bush, he likes to stay low-key, and this is not the kind of thing that he likes to come to for lots of reasons. last time he was here when he was departing the white house, it was mixed when you look at the public perception and the public reaction to it. but i think that, you know, he likes to stay out of the limelight even at traditional events like this. >> think about it. george h.w. bush was here for both reagan inaugurals, then his own inaugural, bill clinton's inaugural. i'm not sure we had a bush at the second inaugural. both were governors. the bush name has been around a lot. >> since 1997. >> and that clinton name. >> that clinton name, yeah. who says we don't have dynasties in american politics? >>> up next, a look at what's to come over the president's next four years from a woman who was one of his closest advisors
and was a special assistant to george h.w. bush during the administration of george w. bush served as director of policy and planning and richard haas said it's time to rethink sovereignty. he argues sovereignty is not only becoming weaker in reality, but needs to become weaker. states should want to weaken sovereignty in order to protect themselves. those are some of the ideas. before proceeding i want to make one thing absolutely clear. i'm not talking against international law or relations nitrite clear between trains nationalism and globalism. there's nothing wrong with having international, the two nations. the united states as a nato treaty with western europe, defend ourselves, and international treaty. there's plenty of trade treaties. same thing. i am criticizing the book supranational or transnational, think of the transcontinental railway, something across nation. so the term transnational is used and that's distinguished from international. those are some of the ideas you could stick in the refit little now. what are global or transnational lives? what are global laws and rules mea
of political capital. we remember the famous line george w. bush delivered saying i've earned political capital and i'm going to use it -- or spend it, rather. how much political capital did this president earn in his first term? i want you all to weigh in on that quickly. >> i think it was manifest in the fact that he got re-elected by a rather decent margin. even an opposition party who reads election returns that may mean something but after the fist year it means less and less. the result is if a president is more and more frustrated in congress, what second-term presidents have tended to do is, one, try do more by executive action, as president obama is already trying to do with gun control, and the other thing is they get more involved in foreign policy than perhaps before because that's something they could do without consulting congress every hour. >> the death of osama bin laden was huge. and that gave him an enormous amount of political capital. but there are so many things that he can't predict. i mean with ronald reagan, he had iran/contra, and that really pulled -- you talk about b
it. >> reporter: despite that pledge in 2004, george w. bush's second term was marred by a slew of bad headlines from escalating violence in iraq to his administration's response to hurricane katrina. >> doing a heck of a job. >> reporter: still second terms can offer a shot at redemption. take reagan paving the way for the end of the cold war. >> mr. gorbachev, tear down this wall! >> reporter: humor can also go a long way, like when bill clinton with a little help from his wife mocked his own lame-duck status. with this unforgettable video from his final months in office. >> i really think bill has everything under control. >> wait, wait, wait, wait! >> reporter: and of course depending upon what happens four years from now it may well be bill clinton making more lunches for his wife as she could potentially be among those vying for a chance to call the white house home. but as it comes to the second-term agenda for the president, the first thing at the top is complete your remarks for tomorrow's inaugural address, roughly 24 hours from now. we are told by valerie jarrett, one
clinton term and the second term of president george w. bush. gentlemen, let's start with a simple question. joe, to you, is there a second-term curse that all second-term presidents face or is that mythology? >> i think it's mythology. it's circumstances. i think this second term is starting with a little wind at his back. remember, the president came in in a terrible economic crisis. you know, if you listen to a lot of the economists, things are turning around. that's a significant difference and, you know, in politics, you face head winds and sometimes the wind behind your back. it really feels like this could be a very positive time. >> i don't think it's a myth. second terms have been tough, traditionally, but no magic to it. getting the economy under "control" will be very, very important. the president faces one problem, though, and we become almost a parliamentary system in the actions of legislative bodies and he's got a republican house that he's got to find a rhythm to work with him. president clinton did that, joe, his second term we were able to balance the budget for
their accomplishments in the first term. others have not. george w. bush did not talk much about his first term but decided to make a bold foreign policy statement. what are the considerations that go into choosing what you say. >> when you look at the history of inaugural addresses there are some determined by the trajectory of history. john f. kennedy gave a speech that codified the moral commitments of the cold war. ronald reagan's first inaugural speech was an economic speech. the context was inflation which was a threat to the country at that time. but most of others, bush was like that too, most of the other good ones, jefferson's first or whatever, they're really about the values that unite the country and then also try to put your moment in the broad long context of american history. why this is important and how we're led forward. without being a policy address, it says we have certain values that mean we have to confront certain problems. if i was working on this speech, which i'm not, i would address this problem of polarization, the deep divisions of our country, how we get passed t
, still so many, it only happened because the country was so mad at george w. bush, that any democrat would have won. it's a personal validation for barack obama. as president and as a person and as a politician. is he any different? he went through four tough years. he came into town thinking with a democratic majority thinking he could get almost anything done. his signature initiative is that health care reform. it wasn't easy. he wasn't able to get much else big done. how does he play his hand in a second term? we've seen some minor acts leading up to the bigger plays, the fiscal cliff and the negotiations. the biggest problem in washington is there is a trust deficit. republicans blame the president, the president and the democrats blame republicans for that. he's the singular leader of the country. we can all debate that. he needs to find a way to break it and start a second term. >> he joked because his drawers teenagers and want to spend less time with him and he may have more time to hang out with members of congress and back slap. has that been an issue? >> i don't see him s
, richard nixon, gerald ford, to be carter, ronald reagan, george bush and so on. more recently, george w. bush and barack obama. the tradition has been maintained. at some point, when a new president is elected, st. john's makes an effort to contact that and have them sign this very historic book, which is a very dear item to the church. it does not sit in the president's piu anymore but it is one of those great pieces of history long associated with this church from 1856 to the present. one of the little-known facts about presidential inaugurations is that it has been the custom in modern times to have a church service, a worship service of some kind before the president takes the oath of office. a lot of people feel that is something of a longstanding tradition, and it's not. it actually began with franklin roosevelt on march 4, 1943, when he wished to have a worship service take place before he took the zero art -- before he took the oath of office in the depths of the great depression. he contacted the church and organized a special service with his former headmaster who participated
. >> i suspect it will probably be a lot like the atmosphere of george w. bush in his first term. it was chilly and cold. >> the joint committee will do their best to warm it up at the inaugural luncheon where the president and joe biden are giving crystal vases but with obama seated with harry reid and speaker boehner, i half expect a food taster present but joking aside, they will be collegial, that is expected. >> senator schumer joked he and his inaugural co-chairman will be sitting between be to keep it simple but he said for the sake of the nation he hopes the two parties find a way to develop a better recentship in the years ahead. >> that tunnel ordeal was a mess, i heard they did not even print purple tickets this time. >> they retired the purple ticket after what happened in 2009. >> battery fire on a japan airlines 787, two weeks ago was not caused by overcharging. the national transportation safety board said there could be problems with wiring. the f.a.a. in the united states and many other countries grounded the boeing 787 dreamliner until they get answers. the plan
this year officials estimate 600,000 to 800,000 will be on hand. more than the crowds for george w. bush's inauguration but a far cry from 2009. there will still be star power, beyoncÉ and james taylor will take part in the ceremony. the mood on the mall will be different, and the president's speech likely to reflect that. like the nation is not teetering on the brink like it was in 2009, it's still struggling with high unemployment, and voters republic -- voters' lack of confidence in washington. >> we will have a good year if we make sound investments and as long as washington politics don't get in the way. >> before the hard work of the second term begins the obamas will squeeze in a little bit of fun in 2009 the president and first lady had a while wind night on the town, 10 inaugural balls. this year, there are two, one expecting to draw more than 35,000, who would groove to the up so0s of katy perry, usher. >> i like a good party. >> but it could be an early night. the president's got a job to do the next day. >> it's been a busy and productive four years, and i expect the same fo

are entering a rare moment in history. president obama faces as president clinton and george w. bush before him the challenge of giving a second inaugural message to the american people. what advice would you give him? >> i would say be very conciliatory. that is what -- whether he feels it or not, that is what i think he has to do. if he is not it will be an insight whether or not he is experiencing that second term malady that many presidents experience, hubris, there are too many rhetorical flourishes, these is thinking about his lebanon si after gibes that he wants to do battled in 2014 and take complete power and move this country further down the road he wants it to go. i would watch for that. is it conciliatory. >> heather: i want to take a look at favorability ratings. president obama is down as he heads into second term, it's 48% compared to president bush who was 57% as he entered second term. president clinton down slightly and president reagan who was up 51 to 64%. so brad, does president obama face an uphill battle from here? >> he does. all the more reason to be conciliatory. we h
democrats were in the minority and threatening to filibuster against george w. bush's judicial nominees, their leader, harry reid, had some kind things to say about the tactic. >> the filibuster serves as a check on power and preserves our limited government. right now the only check on president bush is the democrats' ability to voice their concern in this body, the senate. if the republicans roll back our rights in this chamber, there will be no check on power. the radical right wing will be free to pursue anything they want. >> now the shoe is on the other foot. i asked larry crane to discuss the double standard. 700,000 workers and many industries including media and telephone data services and health care. but that's just his day job. larry co hen is also a leader of the democracy initiative, a coalition as progressive and varied as the naacp, common cause, the sierra club, greenpeace, jobs with justice and the afl-cio. along with an affiliated campaign called fix the senate now, they are working hard to change the filibuster rules. take a look at their ad. >> as climate change thr
